REQUEST FOR PUBLIC COMMENT

The Commission and certain other members of the Canadian Securities Administrators (the "CSA") are publishing for a 90-day comment period the following documents in today's Bulletin:

  • Multilateral Instrument 45-102 Resale of Securities ("MI 45-102");
  • Form 45-102F1 Notice of Intention to Distribute Securities under Section 2.8 of MI 45-102 Resale of Securities ("Form 1")
  • Companion Policy 45-102CP (the "Companion Policy")

collectively, "Proposed MI 45-102".

Proposed MI 45-102 is intended to replace the current resale rule, forms and companion policy (collectively, the "Current Resale Rule") that came into effect in all CSA jurisdictions, except Québec, on November 30, 2001.

We are also proposing to make consequential amendments to National Instrument 13-101 System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR), National Instrument 62-101 Control Block Distribution Issues and Ontario Securities Commission Rule 45-501 Exempt Distributions. We request comments by May 2, 2003.

The documents are published in Chapter 6 of the Bulletin.
